CBS Hypes President Obama's Restaurant Tip; Ignores 'Little Progress' With Women in Cabinet
Anthony Mason played up President Obama's $89 restaurant tip on the 26 August 2013 edition of CBS This Morning, underlining that "when it comes to tips, President Obama is tops." However, the morning newscast glossed over an item the same morning from the New York Times that pointed out the "uncomfortable reality for the White House: the administration has named no more women to high-level executive branch posts than the Clinton administration."
The transcript of Anthony Mason's news brief from CBS This Morning:
ANTHONY MASON: The New York Daily News says when it comes to tips, President Obama is tops. He had lunch with eight people last week at a restaurant in Rochester, New York. The bill was $89, and the President doubled it for the tip.
